A 2002 Christianity Today Book of the Year!Postmodernism.The term slowly filtered into our vocabularies about three decades ago and now permeates most discussions of the humanities. Those who tout the promises and perils of this twentieth-century intellectual movement have filled many a bookshelf. And in a previous book, Postmodernizing the Faith: Evangelical Responses to the Challenge of Postmodernism, Millard J. Erickson provided his own summary of several evangelical responses--both positive and negative--to the movement. Now in this book Erickson offers his own promised in-depth analysis and constructive response.- What are the intellectual roots of postmodernism?- Who are its most prominent exponents?- What can we learn from their critique of modernism?- Where do their assumptions and analyses fail us?- Where do we go from here?- What might a post-postmodernism look like?Erickson addresses these issues with characteristic discernment, clarity and evenhandedness, neither dismissing the insights of postmodern thought nor succumbing uncritically to its allure.An important book for all who are concerned with commending Christian truth to the culture within which we live.
